An independent festival celebrating boundary-pushing sound, Le Guess Who celebrate their twelfth year this week in the picturesque city of Utrecht in the Netherlands.
The festival is hosted across a collection of unique venues across the city, from established performance venues, to stunning churches, warehouses and intimate cafes. With a schedule that spans a global range of sounds and styles, Le Guess Who? is the perfect opportunity to explore the city whilst artists explore the breadth and depth of their sonic, celebrating innovation and the avant-garde.
The programming this year is courtesy of the festival’s four key curators: Devendra Banhart, Moor Mother, Shabaka Hutchings and director/activist Asia Argento. With anticipated performances from the likes of our recent cover star Tirzah, serpentwithfeet and the beloved Neneh Cherry, 2018’s Le Guess Who? promises to be the rich, nourishing and eclectic experience it was heralded as by The Independent last year.
Ahead of this year’s festival we’ve put together a playlist packed full with the artists we’d recommend you check out over the weekend.
